    Very helpful staff. The room was absolutely fine for an overnight stay. Location was reasonable, requiring a bus trip and 20 minute walk to centre.

    Very good

    Staff excellent, good breakfast, room spacious and clean, good location,helpful information, good carparking, good reception area, to reiterate the staff could not have been better

    I would not go as far to say as dislike, but digital TV would be handy and not much cost, and the shower was not very good

    Very good

    The deserts were excellent - high quality and individual. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the dance evening on Sunday.

    Frozen vegetables in the restaurant. These did not match the quality of the rest of the food - although I suspect the chicken had also been frozen as it was dry and relatively tough. The sauses were excellent. Slow service at breakfast on Sunday - tables not cleared, orange juice tasted watered down.

    Superb

    The staff were most friendly and helpful; the food was excellent.The situation is very good, as there is a bus stop very close to the hotel. We shall definitely stay there whenever we go to Cambridge.I was surprised by the adverse reviews some people had written. It looked as if the hotel had been recently smartened up, as the bar area was beautifully decorated.

    Very good

    Hotel staff is nice and the breakfast is sufficient. I particularly liked the dining in the back of the hotel which was nice and sunny

    There is no internet in the rooms neither wifi in the hotel´s living room. There is an internet point in the reception (1pound-15min). I think this aspect can be improved. In the shower, the water was running out slowly sometimes.

    The location is quite good, and having a car park there is handy

    The 'deluxe' room I had was 2 single beds bolted together, the tv was from 1985, and only got 4 channels, the breakfast service was so slow it could have got overtaken by continental drift and from my room I could hear at least 4 other rooms. Not worth the price at all

    The ensuite bathroom with jacuzzi and sauna

    Room was a little small and bed squeaky also room fridge was very loud during the night

    The off-road parking was a plus.

    Decorations are tatty, giving the place an old, tired and uncared for feel. Restaurant was not kept clean during breakfast - probably understaffed. This generated an unwelcoming feeling.

    Fabulous

    The hotel was on a bus route from Cambridge Centre and Station I had room 106 which faced the road but was not unduly noisey. Breakfast was included and was of a good standard. A good discount was obtained by booking through Booked.net A very pleasant two night stay

    Leaving the next day was my highlight

    The room was small, it had a 4 poster bed when felt like it had seen better days! The Bathroom looked new and had a sauna, shower and Jacuzzi, wowowwow I thought! However, the shower was bad, squeezing a bottle of water would produce a better jet of water. So I thought i'll have a Jacuzzi, I fitted it with water, however when I pushed the button, it didnt work, being a man I fiddled with the dials and they came off in my hand!, Its didnt work at all, clearly this had been broken for sometime. Very disapointing

    Location was suitable for our needs

    It was dated and required significant upgrade to the facilities throughout. Breakfasts were not good in terms of quality of food or service levels.
